Circa 1969, several strangers, most with a secret to bury, meet by chance at Lake Tahoe's El Royale, a rundown hotel with a dark past. Over the course of one night, everyone will show their true colors - before everything goes to hell.
Acting debut of Metallica frontman James Hetfield. Director Joe Berlinger had previously worked with Hetfield and his band on the documentary Metallica: Some Kind of Monster (2004). Additionally, Metallica's song "The Four Horsemen" was used in a scene where Bundy's (Zac Efron) teeth were photographed in his cell. See more »
At the very beginning of the film which says late 1970s, a $5 bill is removed from a wallet that's from a banknote series started in the 2000s. See more »
People forget that Ted Bundy had a plea bargain for only life in prison with no death penalty. He refused it at the last minute which shocked the judge. I still like the 2002 Bundy film with Michael Reilly Burke who also did a great portrayal of Bundy. This is Zac's serious role for once and shows he is a great actor unlike some of his poor comedies.
